Freedom, liberty, and the now defunct Bill of Rights used to protect us from corrupt law enforcement. Today, criminal defense lawyers are freedom’s last hope.
This leads me to the story of Tray B.. Tray was arrested by Plano PD for DWI. The Plano Star Courier reports that during Boswell’s DWI trial, his criminal attorney Phillip, requested the cell phone records from Sarah B., Trey’s wife. Trey and Sarah were going through a divorce. Child custody was an issue.
Phone records indicated that numerous phone calls were made between Sarah Boswell and the arresting officers Ron Michael Scott Copeland and Jon. The calls were initiated by both parties. Kress, Copeland and Britton claimed they had never met Sarah Boswell .
Court records state Copeland detained B without probable cause and issued two traffic citations. Phone records state on that day, at least four phone calls were made from Sarah Boswell to Copeland, despite their claim of never meeting before.
Tray filed a federal lawsuit after the DWI was dismissed. Don’t believe criminal defense lawyers are freedom’s last hope? Surely the government is policing the police and looking out for your rights? Here is a great quote from the Plano City Attorney, Diane Wetherbee.
Plano City Attorney Dianne Wetherbee said the officers conducted themselves
in an appropriate manner involving the incident.”We will vigorously defend
them,” While Diane is vigorously defending the officers, we should all be glad Phillip Linder was doing the same for Mr. B.
